Feminist Resistance

Generations of Nakba


Please note that at the January 12 rerun, we will be presenting version 1 of the program (Le miroir de Jamila + Gris, noir et bleu).


This final screening night centers around the stories of Palestinian women who have powerfully fought against and resisted Zionism in its many forms and sites. The two films presented respectively reflect on the experience of guerilla fighting and the haunting memories of imprisonment in Israeli jails, offering rich and important detail to often silenced narratives.

Arab Loutfi | 1993 | Palestine | 30 min | Arabic with English subtitles | Documentary

Jamila’s Mirror deals with the memories of Palestinian female guerilla fighters, currently in their forties, who were involved in military operations during their teen years.


Grey Black and Blue (January 12)
